Mizzou Engineering Secures Nanoscribe Quantum X Shape 3D Printer

Researchers at Mizzou have spent eight years trying to figure out a way to fabricate a complex microfluidic filter that would allow doctors to efficiently recover cancer cells from patients blood without damaging the cells. Now, they can easily make a prototype, thanks to a new Nanoscribe Quantum X Shape high-resolution 3D printer at Mizzou Engineering.
